Although VDI has been touted as the most economical, efficient way to manage desktop, server-side solutions pose serious drawbacks—including massive infrastructure investment, huge data-center power bills, and the need for ample bandwidth and high Internet speeds. What if your organization could confer the benefits of VDI at a much lower cost than server-based options? (Spoiler: You can!)
